Let's Make It
Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts with a small paring knife. Cut about a 1 and 1/2 to 2 inch slit on the thickest side of the breast (slit horizontally). With your finger, gently make a pocket inside the slit by moving your finger from side to side. Be careful not to puncture the sides of the chicken. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, shredded mozzarella, 2 tablespoons grated parmesan, basil, oregano, and salt/pepper. Put this mixture into a piping bag and fill each chicken breast until just full. Close the slits with tooth picks, place on baking sheet.
Bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes or until done. Transfer chicken to shallow baking dish, cover with marinara, sprinkle each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon bread crumbs, some more parmesan, and 1 slice each mozzarella. Put back into oven for about 10 more minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
